The Action Hobbies Kingsville’s “Historical Train Slide Show #5″ takes place this weekend at Action Hobbies, located at 197 Lansdowne Avenue in Kingsville.

This show will focus on the latter part of the 20th Century in Southern Ontario – the “end of an era”, at least for railroading in southwestern Ontario. Photographs of trains and rail related history, local and otherwise, spanning decades will all be on display.

Featured in this show is visiting presenter Aleks Stefanovic from Brantford, Ontario who has been taking shots of railroads for 40 years. Also an HO scale model railroader, Aleks’ shots offer scenic, detailed views of railroad environments and locales across Southern Ontario. A variety of railroads will be featured in this presentation spanning several decades. Stefanovic’s photography is in itself something to see, but any railfan will be especially pleased with Aleks’ excellent work.

Aleks’ show will be approximately 3hrs in length with a break in the middle. No other presenters or screenings will be a part of this show as we feature one of southern Ontario’s finest rail photographers’ excellent work.

Complimentary snacks are offered in addition to an onsite pay-as-you-go pop machine that features the ever-popular Mystery Pop selection. The night starts at 6pm. Admission is free.
